    We are the wealthiest nation in the world and have to make our own masks at home with discarded clothing. Something is not right with this picture. Every other country around the planet seems to have N-95 masks for all their citizens…..but not us.

    We have a lot of naysayers out here. Protect yourself and protect others from this virus and from those idiots.
    Some may think it’s unnecessary. They are fools. You may be a carrier and not even know it. Educate yourselves peoples.
    No one trusts the WHO, they were in cahoots with China. Follow CDC. Period.

    I have read about the need to or NOT need to wear a mask. CDC says highly recommended and WHO says not necessary…keep your distance if you are well and have NO symptoms and masks are not necessary. Who’s right??

    I used handkerchief and used 2 hairbands looped like slingshot.
    1 band on hanky and loop 2nd on ears. One band is too tight or too short

    so why not just use the coffee filter between two bandana’s and tie them snuggly around your face?

    Don’t let fake people tell you not to wear a mask. Educate yourself and wear a mask. This is no joke. Take care of yourself, family and others. Wear a mask please.
